Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Doncaster Rovers has been postponed on safety grounds.
Club Doncaster staff had worked throughout Thursday and Friday to clear the Club Doncaster Sports Village car parks and inner ring road, as well as clear snow and ice from within the stadium itself.
EFL appointed referee Richard Wigglesworth carried out a pitch inspection on Friday afternoon and deemed the pitch playable, but after discussions with the safety advisory group, South Yorkshire Police and the EFL the game has been postponed
Club Doncaster’s head of operations Marie Hepburn said: “I’d like to thank all the staff who have been out doing everything they can to get the game ahead, with people from every department within the club willing to put in time and effort to clear the stadium site and pitch.
“Unfortunately, despite all that work, we simply couldn’t guarantee the safety of everyone attending which is the top priority for us. There is further adverse weather forecast overnight and on Saturday morning, and we were only left with one option.”
Match tickets for the game will be valid for the re-arranged date, so if you already have a ticket please keep hold of it. If you are unable to attend on the new date, once announced, you can request a refund at our Ticket Office.
Those who have taken advantage of the free travel need not do anything.
Supporters are encouraged to continue to monitor the Club’s official website and social media platforms as further updates regarding the re-arranged game will be posted when confirmed.
We would also like to thank Doncaster Rovers for their continued communication throughout.
